Thanks for posting this.   One of the weapons I've most wanted primed but had little hope for.

Compared to Wraith...

Pros: More damage, more Slash, better RoF, more crit chance, punch through, even better range, better accuracy, faster (presumably sequential) reload, and two more pellets. 

Cons: A lot less status per pellet. Ooogly.

I don't think it will be an especially popular prime. But as long as it is sequential reload and doesn't sound like a wet fart, I'm psyched.

Not as long as I'm going to have to wait for my Fusilai Prime -mag strategy to pay off. 

i'd probably argue that Deadly Maneuvers + Synth Charge is more creative and engaging strategy. nothing against Fusilai, but.

this is from October.2020 - pretty sure i later realized that Pistol Gambit was better than Hornet Strike, but that can't get changed until i actually Equip this again which is not likely to happen, i made a meme but i don't really have a reason to use it, heh
no real incentive to use creative Weapons when everything needs to be competent at wiping rivers of Trash Units

Oh Deadly Maneuvers + Synth certainly beats Synth alone.  And I definitely want to see the ridiculous numbers you can get with that build  -now-.

Maybe Fusilai (or throwing weapons in general) will get a mod as cool as Deadly Maneuvers some day.

Sentinels especially make no frigging sense, in fact lore-wise in general we could use a lot more explanation: 

On the border of charted space, an enclave of small, strange, seemingly intelligent creatures was discovered by Tenno explorers. They are mechanical entities, almost organic in appearance, with a precarious resemblance to the fearsome Sentients that had decimated human civilization. However, these creatures showed no signs of aggression, and they immediately began carrying out helpful tasks in peculiar alliance with the Tenno.

So like what ARE they then? Are they friendly fragments of the sentients? Are they some ancient piece of Orokin tech we stumbled upon that sees us as allies? And how are the sentinels all "creatures we found" and "tenno faction", but also we have obviously infested and grineer themed sentinels? So where did we come across those... on the edge of space just like the rest? If so why are some particularly themed like enemy factions? 

From a lore perspective sentinels are almost completely unexplained and make little sense imo. 

I mean, that's easy. The base ones are just copies of the primes by the other factions

Ooh nice. 

Thanks for that that's my headcanon now until DE says or someone proves otherwise with lore quotes. I'd give you upvote but I'm out for the day because I get free time at work and give out upvotes like candy lol.

disclaimer: i play like 80-90% of the game with Saryn, so all of my Weapon/Modding choices basically revolve around that.

For the longest time, I was always convinced the ideal would be Nidus Prime, Djinn Prime and Gazal Machete Prime for the synergy and theme all lining up.

Instead, he's used as catch-up for 'missed' weapons? Really?

My thoughts exactly like there’s old infested weapons they could’ve gave new life too like the dual ichor etc his prime weapons are just kinda disappointing

Seems...kind of...mediocre.

I mean at least it has a passable base Crit Chance, that's not something many shotguns can attest to.

However it still seems worse than the Corinth Prime by a noteworthy degree, sadly I think this thing might wind up in the same Category as the Latron Prime "Technically better...not that it helps much".

It’s literally being released September 8th?

Check the date of the post you quoted?

The game's art director said infested weapons can't be primed. This is why there's no Hirudo Prime despite Hirudo being Nidus's signature weapon.

Actual infested weapons can't be primed as per the game's art director during Tennocon when they revealed Nidus Prime, so there was zero reason to expect Djinn Prime. 

Right, and there was zero reason to expect anything other than Gemini Prime when it was Valkyr's turn coming up.

And like I said, this was an expectation I've had for years. An art director's quote from a month ago does not mean I had 'zero' reason to expect it way in advance. :/

Well, as long as you are aware that expectation should have died that day then it's all good.

Or, get this!  It could have a straight shooting normal fire mode, but then an AOE on its secondary fire!  Brilliant, right?!  Completely unheard of, even!

 

 

I'm being sarcastic.

I think headshots should get double-bonus OR it should have inherent “Shattering Impact” to it.

There, I just made an easily implemented game-design decision that gives you that “Go Ahead, MAKE MY DAY!” Magnus feel.

Hah!

Yeah Magnus Prime is going to be sweet in a couple of years.  In the meantime you could keep yourself occupied trying to roll an even better riven, lol.

I thought that when Valkyr Prime came out, they did a retcon on primes and said that the original warframes were the originals (or prototypes) and Primes were like the premium versions shown publicly and such. Don't quote me on that, but I remember hearing that in a dev stream and such somewhere... since the comic for Octavia also had her base warframe instead of her prime, since the prime didn't exist at the time. So, if we go by the "The normal warframes were the original prototypes" thing, a Nidus Prime makes sense as well as Valkyr Prime.

No you're right, so many people are being dumb about it. It's now established through Ivara's Levarithan entry. The Vanilla/Base frames are the original/prototype/test bed of the warframe's concept. If it isn't trash they are perfected through Priming and mass produced.

I'd love to see where Geoff (the Art Director) says that. Can't find him saying that anywhere in recent history 🤔
Meanwhile strikes against it being a signature weapon.

  1. No mention of Nidus in the description
  2. No special bonus when used by him
  3. No mention in the patch notes of it being Nidus's signature or anything in relation to him

All other signatures have either 1 or 2 of those.
